And, no surprise, it's good. We're basically just assuming that with "To the Boy I Jumped in Hemlock Alley," White Fence's Tim Presley is referring to San Francisco's Hemlock Alley. (Y'know, that sketchy little alley next to Hemlock Tavern?) But since Presley is a Bay Area native who records and performs up here regularly, that's a pretty reasonable assumption. The song, the third track to be released from Presley's upcoming album, Cyclops Reap (out tomorrow), is another wonderfully damaged slab of slow, Lennonesque pop. But as initiates know well, White Fence does this stuff fantastically well. Take a listen:
